Wow! What a nice break, ehh? The CTD closed shop early for the holidays which gave me more time to focus on my kiddo and spoiling her, but it's been a while since I've shared a project ;] With the new year, we're getting back into the swing of things, and I'm also soooo excited to announce that I'm the January Artist of the Month for Our Craft Lounge! I was equally humbled and excited when Kendra asked me to join them for the month :]
I have lots of OCL goodies to work with, but I chose Pretty Petals for my first project, because it's my FAVE set!! I also like the fact that I can use it for the much needed thank you cards this time of year, and also as a catalyst to gently bring us out of the holiday season. My MTME Buzz-y Blooms and Get Graphic patterned paper also helped to promo this fun set.
I used the Mojo Monday 221 sketch from last week as the inspiration for my layout.
I masked two of my daisies and sponged the bg on the main panel, and layered another I cut by hand. The centers of my daisies are indeed fluffy, if you were wondering ;] I used OCL's exclusive Sparkly Fluff, Lemon Drop Yellow on my blooms ♥
My sentiment is from the very versatile OCL Say It With Flowers set. I just love the fun, "You're Bloomin' Fabulous!" sentiment. This will be perfect for a close girlfriend of mine ;] I stamped it with Staz On on vellum after cutting my flag with the Lil Inker Sentiment Flag Die. I adhered my button and white hemp twine with hot glue.
That wraps up my project deets for today, but be sure to check in each Monday this month for another dose of OCL inspiration ala Kristin ;]
Hope you and yours had a wonderful holiday this season. I wish you all the best 2012 has to offer.
